In this paper, we present a particle swarm optimization based location recommendation scheme (PSO-LR) for Device-to-Device (D2D) Communication underlying Long Term Evolution (LTE) cellular networks. The proposed scheme enables D2D users to move to new locations which provide better link qualities and a higher system capacity. Also, it can balance resource allocation between cellular users and D2D users. The simulation results illustrate that the proposed PSO-LR scheme can effectively improve the total system capacity by location recommendation for D2D users, and reduce both the distance and time of location recommendation by comparison with other location recommendation scheme [11].
